Winter White

white jeans in the winter

Oh, Chiberia. I was sort of hoping you’d never come! It’s been C-O-L-D in Chicago these past few weeks, which has made getting dressed for meetings all sorts of challenging. I’m not really into the whole sleeping-bag-coat thing, so I’ve been sticking to layering a thermal under my sweaters, opting for turtlenecks (#twistmyarm .. JK, I have a real obsession with turtlenecks for some unknown reason), wearing a beanie always, and warm wool coats.

Breaking all sorts of old-school sartorial rules with this one… White jeans when there’s snow on the ground… A navy blue coat with black booties… Such a rebel, I know. But with my black sunglasses balancing out the black booties, my white beanie balancing out the white jeans, the silver buttons on my coat playing against the grey sweater and silver hardware on my bag, and the graphite blue/grey handbag pulling it all together… I think it works! What are your thoughts on wearing white jeans not just after Labor Day, but when there’s snow on the ground?

    These photos are gorgeous! I’ve never actually owned a pair of white denim…or tried them on, for that matter. But this outfit has me wanting to wear them right now! 🙂

    I totally feel you on the sleeping bag coat thing, but this year I finally got a light weight one that is so warm from LLBean and it’s worth the poof. I’ve been so warm!

    Very nice outfit. Nice to see you are breaking the no white before labor day rule. A few weeks ago when it felt like summer I bought out the little white dress for a day. It was nice to wear summer white in December.
